Visited the local paintball shop today and picked up the trinity body for the VS markers... man, this thing is light! If you compare pics of the new body to a new bob long, you'll see a lot of similarities. Although, it still looks great. It seems to be of pretty good quality as well.

The shop had an upped VS2 for sale.. had the red body kit, the trinity front block with a CP reg and they also changed out the stock reg/on off with a standed screw-in on/off. This VS2 was extremly light. Not sure if its true as I didn't have the guy toss the markers on a scale, but he said that this upped VS2 only weighed 2 ounces more than a slightly modified Ego they had for sale. Thats not bad at all! The body kit alone makes a pretty big difference in weight.

I would have the thing installede and pics posted, but of all things to do, I forgot the kit in my office at work. Go figure. I'll be stopping by tomorrow to pick it up and hopefully I can install it this weekend and get some pics up. The kit also comes with some dow 55 lube and 3 new orings. the orings replace the 2 on the valve and the 1 on the block. The airsmith said everything goes together prefectly. Once I get everything together, I'll let everyone know. Right now, I'm thinking this kit and the front block are an absolutly GREAT upgrade for performance and weight.


Not sure if its true... Heard kingman may be working on another trigger frame for the VS series as well. Whether or not that's true, its like the upgrade-party is just getting started!

Swelling o-rings isn't necessarily bad, especially for non-moving parts, your seal will be better then (in places like the valve).

I'm assuming the Dow 55 is whats needed since that is what Trinity provides with the kit. It's probably to make sure that the ORings provide a good seal inside the new body.


Unfortunatly I can not locate my camera, its MIA, other wise i'd provide some pics. As most of us know, the marker comes apart relativly easily. The area I had the most difficulty in was removing the stock feed neck to place it on the new body. Go figure. But the new body is made pretty well, and I had no issues with anything or any part of peicing it together. Everything has a good fit. What needs to be tight is tight, while what needs a little room has the room is needs. The body is cut pretty precisly, which is good to know.

There is a slightly noticable difference in weight between the TRinity body and the stock body. Also, just a heads up out there if anyone cares... the blue frame also has a slightly purple look to it in certain lighting...atleast the one I picked up does. still more blue than anything, so I'm happy with it.

Is the body kit the same as the red one on the Trinity VS2/3? If not can someone link some pictures since I can not access their site from work because it contains "porn"... and because I keep forgetting to look at home.

It might be? I can't find the marker they customized anywhere...

It looks a lot similar to the new bob long markers.

I really need to find my digital camera... or just break down and use the cell phone cam...

I picked up the rest of the Trinity parts today... I'm a sucker for blue, ok?

front block, on/off, feedneck... along with a blue CP reg, which is a pretty close match to the trinity parts. It looks pretty good together, almost like a whole new gun. well... i guess it kind of is...

I'll pull some pics off my cell phone tomorrow...err...later today. Tonight did not go as planned.

Also, I placed all the stock parts in the box I got the new body in.... yah... the marker now weighs about as much as the box with the stock spyder parts I replaced. freakin' nuts.

I'm someone will notice and ask... the pressure gauge is neither the stock spyder or trinity gauge. I was unable to remove the stock gauge (on a little too tight and I started rounding the edges), and the stock trinity gauge didn't work, so the local PB shop took care of the issue and installed a centerflag guage. the yellow may not be the best, but its easy to read and it works for the time being.

Very nice.

Looks nice, just need some stickies and a new gauge ( yeah I know you've had problems, but its just odd looking).

Actually it looks quite sick, but when the body is so nice, the trigger frame looks unmilled and like it could do with a deal of milling.

I can't complain since it was a free low pressure gauge. (The stock trinity gauge is a high-pressure gauge) However you're more than welcome to complain for me. :) I'll be getting a new guage and some grips one of these days.

And thanks guys!

Nice........

Why may I ask it the bolt pin setting so high? Is that body lower than normal or was it just not engaged into the striker? -

The body is lower than the stock... The pin is fully engaged.

Great that a outside company is making aftermarket bodies, but I was not impressed with mine at all.

The basic milling I have dont to some VS bodies, produced a significantly lighter body than the Trinity one. The Trinity body also didnt appear to be buffed of smoothed out before anodizing, and tooling marks were visible all over the place. Just my .02 Cents.

This is why its called "Dust"... You can pick up regulator, barrels, feednecks and other markers parts that are dust style, rather than gloss


Also, the only spot on my body that has any machine parts is by the eye area... the eye covers take care of it, so doesn't bother me any. IF you did buy one and it has all kinds of machining marks on it, then I'd call trinity and get a new one. Considering these are brand new I wouldn't expect perfection from them yet.
